A feature-length Breaking Bad film is in the works from the hit series' creator Vince Gilligan, and it's likely to follow Jesse Pinkman.

The movie is reportedly being developed under the fake/working title Greenbrier and it "tracks the escape of a kidnapped man and his quest for freedom".

A report on /Film says the website has learned the film will be "a sequel set after the events of the series finale, following Jesse as he blazes a trail away from that horrifying [final episode]".

Aaron Paul is reported to be reprising his role as Jesse, after the character's storyline was left wide open at the end of the series.

Bryan Cranston, who played the series lead character Walter White, has confirmed the Breaking Bad movie is happening.

During an interview on US radio's the Dan Patrick Show, the actor said he hasn't read the film's script but would "absolutely" appear in the movie if asked by Gilligan.

"It's a great story, and there's a lot of people who felt that they wanted to see some kind of completion to these storylines that were left open," said Cranston.

"This idea, from what I'm told, gets into those... at least a couple of the characters who were not completed, as far as their journey."

The sequel movie will come as fans await another season of Better Call Saul, a prequel series that focuses on lawyer character Saul Goodman and occasionally shows glimpses of his life after Breaking Bad.
